Just days before the launch of his Joy In The Morning Tour, 10-time GRAMMY Award nominee Tauren Wells has dropped the multi-track single “J.I.T.M.,” which includes a powerful new collaboration with Elevation Worship – a group known for such Platinum singles as “Do It Again,” “Graves into Gardens” and “Jireh,” which appeared on 2022’s Old Church Basement, their GRAMMY-winning collaboration with Maverick City Music. Wells trades vocals with Elevation Worship’s Chris Brown, who also plays acoustic guitar, and Tiffany Hudson, on a soulful, extended version of the title track of Wells’ new album, Joy In The Morning. Together, they offer a deeply felt anthem about hope and the promise each new day holds, backed by members of Elevation Worship and Wells’ band. Listen to “J.I.T.M.,” released today via Capitol Records/CCMG, HERE. Watch Wells and Elevation Worship perform the song HERE.
The multi-track single also includes the original album version of the song – which has amassed over 14 million combined global streams to date – and the radio edit. The Apple Music edition includes the video of Wells and Elevation Worship performing “Joy In The Morning” plus a lyric video and a video of Wells performing the song live with his band. “Joy In The Morning” is No. 16 on the Billboard Christian Airplay chart, reaching over 2.7 million weekly listeners with 46 stations spinning the song, including SiriusXM, KLOVE and KLTY. Elevation Worship is currently No. 1 on the Christian Airplay chart with “Same God.”
In this profile, Flaunt Magazine observed, “Wells’ optimism for a better tomorrow demonstrates that music is a common language – an overwhelming sensation of love and infinity in the palm of your hands.” Wells performed “Joy In The Morning” on his recent visit to “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” View HERE.
